Inside the new Hot Press...

The latest issue of Hot Press - available now - has all the information you could possibly need this year's Arthur's Day line-up.

The Hot Press Newsdesk, 12 Sep 2013



We talk to UK urban soul star Emeli Sandé, not only about her taking part in the Arthur's Day Celebrations, but also about her plans to conquer the States in what must have been the busiest year of her career so far.

Also on the agenda – opening and closing the Olympics opening ceremony in London last year, and playing at the White House. Miss Sandé also gives us an insight into the significance her tattoos have for her and elaborates on why she thinks that it was probably for the best that she didn't become Dr Sandé, but lives her dream as one of the most successful female singer-songwriters around instead.

Our coverage of Arthur's Day does not stop there, as we chat to Manic Street Preachers about their new album, provide you with an exclusive interview with R&B sensation Janelle Monáe and check back with Bobby Womack and Irish superstars Kodaline ahead of their respective September 26 appearances.

Elsewhere, Dave Fanning sits down with Roger Waters prior to his Aviva Stadium showdown for a fascinating interview that delves into Waters’ decision to walk away from Pink Floyd, the sacrifices he made to ensure that the Live 8 reunion was a success and how The Wall is arguably more relevant in today’s society than ever before.

As the fluoride debate continues to rage, ex-Minister John Gormley lifts the lid on the suppression of his shocking report into the effects of fluoridation. Also in Frontlines; Hot Press reports back from a week-long trip to Belarus as we reach 10,000 days since the Chernobyl disaster.

Over in Critical Mass, we review the latest efforts from Janelle Monáe, CHVRCHES, Manic Street Preachers, Pixies and much more. There’s also a full Electric Picnic review.

All that and much more await in the brand spanking new edition of Hot Press, featuring Emeli Sandé on the cover, in stores now.
